Edll for Windows

Edll: EnhancedDLL -- to have plugins and libraries with undefined symbols




edll is a new way to create plugins under Microsoft windows avoiding the creation of DLLs altogether. The first advantage is to not have to create libraries with all of their symbols declared at link time. Actually, edll does not require you to link anything, only to create object files. You can use the linker to merge multiple object files and archive libraries (.a files) into one plugin though.

The main reason why edll was created is to replicate on Windows (Win32) the use of the ltdl library available under most Unix platforms. That is, allow undefined symbols in any of your plugins and even the possibility to link back to the main executable.
